Last week, Carolina Beach poured through the Lightning Lane to defeat the front-ending Windsong Leo. On Friday at The Meadows, it was déjà vu all over again, as Carolina Beach used the same scenario to down Windsong Leo in the $18,000 Open Handicap Pace.
Windsong Leo clicked off three-quarters in 1:22.3 and was unchallenged until Carolina Beach knifed inside from the pocket for Dan Rawlings. The 5-year-old Somebeachsomewhere-Laughandbehappy gelding scored in 1:49.3 — his second consecutive sub-2:00 mile — and downed Windsong Leo by 1/2 length. Statham N finished third.
